Mariners top prospect Alex Jackson suffers facial fracture
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder prospect Alex Jackson had to leave his Arizona Rookie League game Monday, after he was hit in the face by a line drive.

Jackson, the team's top pick in this year's draft, had to be taken to a local hospital for X-rays, and Director of Minor League Operations Chris Gwynn told the Seattle Times Tuesday Jackson suffered a small fracture below his eye. At this point, there is no timetable for Jackson's return to action.

"He's doing okay," Gwynn said. "It's supposed to be not really too bad. When you think about it, he could have got hit in the eye or other different places that could have been worse. We're having him see our specialist and we'll see where it goes. Right now, we don't think it's that bad. He's going to rest for a while and see some doctors."

Jackson, the No. 6 overall pick in this year's amateur draft, was hitting .289/.333/.500 in the first 20 games of his career.
